March Stash Report and Goals Recap

When the end of the month falls in the middle of the week, it's kind of awkward for posting the monthly recap on Sunday (linking with Patchwork Times). So, a few days into April, here's the March recap.

Stash Report: 
March IN: 4-1/4 yards (2 yds wide backing;  2 yds low volume & 1 FQ from Merrily's sale)
March OUT: 5 yards (2-1/2 yds backing & 3/4 yd binding for Positively Radiant; 1 yd backing & 1/2 yd binding for coral F9P; 1/4 yd for bee blocks)

YTD IN: 13-3/8 yards
YTD OUT: 41-1/4 yards
YTD Net Change: 27-7/8 yards out
Whoo-hoo! Lots of wiggle room for fabric acquisition in Paducah!
